Well I'm partial to the Sidi City boot but I don't know if it's still offered.



It works whether I'm riding the Geezer Glide or the Duc.

My five year old Bates Fast Lane boots still look almost new and I can wear them anywhere under my dress slacks. They get more comfy by the year.

Try Danner boots (www.danner.com). They have some police/type models with Gore Tex, looking like they would look good at the office and for about $150 (check sites that sell them).

Last year, I searched for a mid-height boot for my commute with similar features as you identified. I don't think there is a perfect boot that is comfortable, stylish (i.e. looks good in office attire), easy on/off, water proof (or resistant), breathable, and offers reasonable crash protection.



I ended up buying the Sidi Champion Te-Por as a good compromise. It is available in both a vented and non-vented model so you can trade off weather protection for more breathability. I like these boots a lot, but when they wear out, I'll shop around again hoping to find that perfect boot that probably doesn't exist.



Anyone know of a boot like the Diadora City Boot? That's more of what I was looking for, but it doesn't appear to be available anymore.

I ride the sidi City boots which are pretty tall (mid to upper calf). I do get hot in the Oregon summer. So I would recomend a boot that is shorter and/or perforated if it gets hot where you live. I would check these out. http://www.newenough.com/sidi_champi...boots_page.htm. Nothing beats a good sale.



Best of luck, ride safe,
